Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Fourth Floor, Sierra Hall 451
The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences presents
A Richard W. Smith Lecture in Cultural Studies featuring:
Pal Zak on Recent Research on Brain Chemistry: A Revolution in the Sciences of Good and Evil
Why do human beings engage in courageous acts of compassion but also perpetrate violence? Could the apparent flip-flopping morality of our species have a hidden explanation?
Paul Zak's new book The Moral Molecule: The Source of Love and Prosperity is a first-hand account of the discovery of a molecule that makes us moral. It reveals that compassion is part of our human nature, why loneliness can kill you, and why your neighbor may be a psychopath.
From the laboratory to the jungles of Papua New Guinea, Paul Zak takes you on an amazing journey that reveals what it means to be human.
This event is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451. Reservations are requested.
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday October 27 4-6pm
GALLERY TALK: Monday, October 29 10am
This is a group exhibition featuring artists whose work depicts visions of future dystopias based on a turbulent present. Desert wastelands, faux fallen satellites, devises designed to ensure your survival and a world seemingly run by giant computer servers; the artists in this show offer a prescient window into a world that not only may be, but in some places, already exists.
Artists include Lisa Adams, Libby Clarke, Daniel Dove, Trygve Faste, Sean Higgins, Kelly McLane, Thomas Muller and Klutch Stanaway.
Additional events including lectures and artists visits in conjunction for this exhibition can be found at www.csun.edu/artgalleries.
Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 12-4, Thursdays 12-8pm. Please note: The Gallery will be closed Nov. 12 and Nov. 22-24.
